A Gripping New Read, Preparing for Summer and Some Exciting …

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]pril, you’ve been an interesting month – weeks of torrential rain, then a sneaky bit of sunshine to trick us into thinking summer has come early. I can’t begin to explain how this has messed with my wardrobe planning! Anyway, enough of that; I think I start every Little Loves post with banal chatter about the weather. Have you come…

A Little Bit of Leopard Print Goes a Long Way

Leopard print or animal print has been around since the dawn of time (literally).

Staying Cosy in Winter with LOTD

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] remember announcing to my sister-in-law that I was going skiing for the first time and she almost fell off her chair: “But you hate the cold!” She’s right, I do hate the cold, but over the years I’ve made it my mission to find ways to keep warm in winter.

10 Big Fashion Tips for Small People

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]f we’ve met in real life then you will know that I’m vertically challenged (another way of saying I’m a short arse). I come from a long line of short people; in fact at 5 ft 2.5, I’m one of the tallest females in my family – go figure! I can’t tell you how pleased I was when high street…

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]ell me I’m not the only person out there who obsesses about something forever before actually buying it? I’ve analysed myself with regard to this little ‘quirk’ and have come to the conclusion that it’s a healthy way to be. Let me explain… Firstly, there is no money wastage because I know that I will definitely get a lot of…

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve been itching to get back to blogging properly again and with the return of Little Loves over at Morgana’s gaff, I had to join in this week. So much has happened over the summer and right now, it feels as though the school holidays have gone on forever and ever. Let’s just say that the entire house could do…
